I can feel it in my chest again, this feeling of upcoming separation. It causes my mind to not fully engage because I am occupied. It has been wonderful having our oldest a short drive away, but that will soon end. A year long adventure awaits and we are thrilled, but a conflict remains. Is this one prepared? Absolutely! This child lives loved, not perfectly mind you. None of us do, but for that there is grace. And this same giver of grace will meet each of us too. He offers comfort, joy, strength and peace too. I have a feeling this mama is going to need all He wants to give in abundance. Already feeling more excited now than when I started writing. Sometimes just telling the truth does wonders.
